Well how mad am I? I decided to have my 1 year old grandson for the whole weekend due to my son and daughter in law both working 12 hour shifts over the weekend. Picked him up at 7.30 Saturday morning and took him home last night at 7pm. I have to say although he is a joy to have, I am absolutely knackered.
I have been feeling great recently as the MTX has really took effect however got up on Sunday morning and both shoulders were very painful and stiff along with the lower half of my back. Problem is he is trying to walk so we are constantly holding his hands while he walks and am bent over. then we are picking him up all the time and doing all the other usual things you do with a baby of that age.
You think you are doing well on the meds and then Bang! as soon as you overdo it you feel like you have been battered all over. Ive only been on my treatment for over 3 months but it looks as though i have to accept that I can't do the things I used to do. I am 51 but today feel more like 71. I am in work as well sitting at my desk sending this blog so at least I made it in..
I think I will have to reduce my babysitting duties to one day as opposed to 2 together .
